(The following information comes from the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.)

LOCATION: 19000 Block of Pruneridge Avenue, Cupertino
CASE NUMBER: 13-334-0309C
DATE: November 30, 2013 TIME: 9:30pm


On November 30th, 2013 at approximately 9:30pm, deputies were dispatched to a commercial burglary in progress building located in the 19000 Block of Pruneridge Avenue in Cupertino.

Apple security had reported that a gate to a fenced off property had been opened and they believed that someone was still on the property.

Deputies requested assistance from the Sheriff's Office Helicopter (Star 1) and Santa Clara Police K-9 Unit to help search the large property.

Santa Clara Police K9 located a male subject hiding in the bushes around the property.

The subject, later identified as 56-year old Glenn Cartwright from Belmont, refused to comply with orders to come out from his hiding spot and was bitten by the police dog.

Deputies located copper piping and copper wiring that had been removed from inside the building and a bag of tools hidden near the exit gate.

Cartwright was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries. Once he was medically cleared, Cartwright was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on charges of burglary and possession of burglary tools.

Cartwright's bail was set at $11,000.

We would like to thank Santa Clara Police Department's K-9 Unit for their assistance in this incident.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident, please contact the Sheriff's Office Investigations Division at 408-808-4500.
